INTERCONTINENTAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE (1974) - On June 5, 1974, the NFL announced plans for a “satellite” league that would start play in the spring of 1975. The NFL even had nicknames for the six teams. They were the Istanbul Conquerors, the Rome Gladiators, the Munich Lions, the Berlin Bears, the Vienna Lippizzaners and the Barcelona Almovogeres. The NFL also had pre-selected four expansion teams – the Paris Lafayettes, the Copenhagen Vikings, the Rotterdam Flying Dutchmen and the Milan Centurions. The NFL owners were to provide the initial funding, and the league would employ “second-line athletes and rookies from established NFL teams.” Heading the NFL committee that was to put the league together were Al Davis and Tex Schramm. The league never materialized. Former soccer coach Bob Kap tried to keep the dream of the league alive, bringing two American college teams over to Europe in 1976 to gauge interest. Kap planned to place teams in West Berlin, London, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Milan, Vienna, Copenhagen and Frankfurt to begin play in March 1977, but nothing came of this plan either.

SUPER BOWL 9 (January 12, 1975 at New Orleans)
PITTSBURGH STEELERS (12-3-1) 16, MINNESOTA VIKINGS (12-4) 6 - AFC champion Pittsburgh, in its initial Super Bowl appearance, and NFC champion Minnesota, making a third bid for its first Super Bowl title, struggled through a first half in which the only score was produced by the Steelers' defense when Dwight White downed Vikings' quarterback Fran Tarkenton in the end zone for a safety 7:49 into the second period. The Steelers forced another break and took advantage on the second-half kickoff when Minnesota's Bill Brown fumbled and Marv Kellum recovered for Pittsburgh on the Vikings' 30. After Rocky Bleier failed to gain on first down, Franco Harris carried three consecutive times for 24 yards, a loss of three, and a 9-yard touchdown and a 9-0 lead. Though its offense was completely stymied by Pittsburgh's defense, Minnesota managed to move into a threatening position after 4:27 of the final period when Matt Blair blocked Bobby Walden's punt and Terry Brown recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. Fred Cox's kick failed and the Steelers led 9-6. Pittsburgh wasted no time putting the victory away. The Steelers took the ensuing kickoff and marched 66 yards in 11 plays, climaxed by Terry Bradshaw's 4-yard scoring pass to Larry Brown with 3:31 left. Pittsburgh's defense permitted Minnesota only 119 yards total offense, including a Super Bowl low of 17 rushing yards. The Steelers, meanwhile, gained 333 yards, including Harris's record 158 yards on 34 carries.
